Medium Access Control (MAC) for LTE
This protocol is layer 2 of the LTE air interface (connecting an LTE UE with an eNodeB).
- MAC-LTE runs over the PHY layer
- BCH, PCH and CCCH payloads can be decoded by the LTE RRC dissector
RAR UL Grant field can be broken down according to 3GPP TS 36.213
The MAC-LTE dissector is fully functional. However, at the moment there is only support for the DCT2000 file format.
MAC-LTE statistics can be viewed in a window (see Telephony | LTE MAC ...)
- Warn if reserved bits are not 0. This controls whether or not expert info should be displayed if reserved bits are non-zero. Default is TRUE.
- Number of Re-Transmits before expert warning triggered. Default is 3.
- Attempt to decode BCH, PCH and CCCH data using LTE RRC dissector. Default is TRUE.
- Attempt to decode details of RAR UL grant field (from breakdown in 3GPP TS 36.213, section 6.2). Default is TRUE.
Example capture file
XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here (see below). Keep this file short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of MAC-LTE display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference
Show only the MAC-LTE based traffic:
You cannot directly filter MAC-LTE protocol frames while capturing.
